Cloud based computer rooms

Published: 15 January 2020

Students can use a cloud service to use applications from the computer rooms on Campus Luleå or from their own computer.

In the list of links at the end of the article, there is a link the teacher in the course can use to order access to the cloud computer rooms.

Target group



If you are using a private computer and this is your first time connecting to the cloud service, download and install the Citrix Workspace App

As from now the following desktops should be used in Citrix:

  • Windows 10 Student (all normal applications)
  • Windows 10 3D CAD Student (for CAD and other graphics demanding applications)

Computers in computer rooms at Campus Luleå have the software installed.
In computer rooms with a thin client, IGEL, it automatically connects to the cloud service.

  1. In the browser on your computer, go to
  2. Log in with your email address at LTU and your LTU-password.
  3. When you start a software, it will launch in the Citrix Workspace App, note that it takes a while to launch the software.

For instructions regarding installation of Citrix Workspace App, see the user guide in the link list below.

You are automatically logged out of the service after 60 minutes of inactivity, your program is in standby mode for a few hours but then closes completely. It is therefore very important that you save your work before that.

We recommend that you save in OneDrive which is included for you as a student at LTU and is pre-installed in the cloud service. Make sure that the Onedrive-icon in the system tray shows it has finished synchronizing your files before logging out to avoid losing data.

You can choose to mark a software as a favorite by clicking the star in the upper left corner of the software you use frequently.

Surfing web pages with the browser in the cloud service

The "computer" you use when logging in through the cloud service is located in Amsterdam, which allows several websites to customize materials and languages based on it.

NOTE! For best performance, it is recommended that you use the OneDrive storage that is included as a student at LTU when using the cloud-based computer rooms.
